Samsung is gearing to release the Exynos 2100, which is expected to debut in the Galaxy S21 series early next year. Now, early battery life results of Samsung's latest chipset have leaked, and they paint it in a good light. Apparently, process and structural changes have yielded a 15% improvement alone. But, the difference between the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy S21 Ultra in some battery life tests could be huge, according to one leaker.

Details about the Exynos 2100 have already leaked, pointing to a 5 nm process and the new ARM Cortex-X1 core for Samsung's next flagship chipset. Now, several leakers have spoken of the battery life improvements that Samsung has delivered with the Exynos 2100 compared to the Exynos 990.

According to @UniverseIce, the Exynos 2100 maintained 78% battery life in the same battery life test where the Exynos 990 dropped to 55%. The leaker adds that the chipsets were tested in the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Apparently, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have the same 5,000 mAh battery as the Galaxy S20 Ultra, removing a variable from that comparison.

A post on the Naver Blog explains that process and structure changes with the Exynos 2100 have yielded up to 15% battery life improvements alone, compared to the Exynos 990. Additionally, newer PCB and antenna parts have reduced power consumption, as has improved heat control. 

The Exynos 990 was no slouch in terms of battery life, even if the Galaxy S20 Ultra did not make great use of its huge battery capacity. Samsung improved the efficiency of the Exynos 990 with the Note 20 Ultra too, although that could not compensate for a 500 mAh smaller battery. Samsung is expected to reveal the Exynos 2100 on December 15, so we should know more about the upcoming then. The company has confirmed that it will unveil the Galaxy S21 series globally on January 14.
